This was my 12th or 13th vacation taken at the Nautilus and it will also be my last. My family has been staying there for approximately 12 years now, sometimes multiple times per year. We have always stayed a minimum of of 7 days during the summer and in the most recent years 16 nights per visit. The quality of this condo has drastically gone down to an almost unacceptable level. When we arrived this year we had several issues, the ice maker was broken, the oven did not work along with 1 burner that would not come on and 1 that would not always turn off, and the lounge on the balcony had a large rip in it making it unusable as well. The towels provided were basically stained rags and there wasn’t enough for a family of 4 to use once. The sheets were stained and tattered. The ice maker never got repaired, the stove was replaced 2 days before our departure. Not to mention the elevator broke at least 6 out of the 16 days we were there. Several days prior to our departure we tried to make reservations for summer 2022. There has been a 55% price increase (they must be trying to pay for the new paint on the building) over the summer 2021 prices, on the unit we requested for the same length of stay and during the same time frame. They mention a million dollar view on their website, now it will almost cost you that much to stay there. When I asked to speak to management, I was ignored. I made several additional requests to speak to management with no reply. Our family and friends occupied 6 units there this summer and were planning on doing the same for 2022. With the lack of communication from management, we will be taking our business elsewhere. We felt like we were imposing on them rather than welcomed by them as we were in years past. The Nautilus is now the 3rd most expensive condo on the island. Do yourself a favor and do a little looking, you will find a better quality unit for a better price and much better management.

Response from Cheryl Trapnell, General Manager at Nautilus Condominium
Responded 9 Sep 2021
Billy, I am so sorry that you had those issues during your stay. The 2021 season was unexpectedly busy and we were not prepared, We had limited staff. The GM changed, the rental staff changed, and the housekeeping staff was changed. Dealing with shortage of staff, and lack of linens and supplies globally due to COVID. Not an excuse for your experience, I just wanted to respond and apologize for the lack of communication. We are hoping when things slow down to a gentle roar we can focus on deep cleans, purchase new linens, and focus on training of the new staff.

Condo had a great location with a great view of the beach. The 2 bedroom condo was very spacious for my family of five. It was a great value for the price. Would definitely go back again with my family.

We booked the month of September had a 2 BR Oceanfront condo, great view and nice condo. Beach access and rented chairs. Hurricane Sally came while we were there with lots of rain and wind. Our MBR sliding glass door leaked we used towels and mop to pick up almost 3 buckets. Cheryl the Manager and her staff were great with daily email communications . Power was out for 2 days then came back on with only 110 and not 220 so no AC. Fortunately cool weather. Cheryl kept following up with Gulf Power to get it restored and repair crews. . Glad we rented at Nautilus will return to it and beautiful Okaloosa Island. Thanks Richard and Darlene, Seniors Texas
